critical to any peace dale. his muslim brotherhood is close to hamas. a hamas spokesman is quoted in one report saying we hold absolutely no hope of hillary clinton helping to resolve this conflict. >> susan mcginnis in washington this morning. thank you so much. as we reported egypt is expected to play a key role in brokering a truce and trying to maintain it. clarissa ward reports from caro this morning. >> reporter: good morning. >> we were expecting some type of announcement last night regarding a cease-fire. what happened? >> reporter: that's the million dollar question. everyone here in egypt was expecting for president morsi to make an announcement last night. they schedule ad time 9:00 p.m. local. the english language newspaper here has the headline as israel and gaza agree on a cease-fire.
4:04 am
that's the level of confidence here that people felt that there was going to be a cease-fire agreement. now trying to determine why that agreement never happened is very difficult. obviously people on each side have different opinions. one official with the freedom and justice party which is the political wing of the muslim brotherhood told us the israelis requested to postpone the agreement for another day and she told us we would hear something later today. but at this stage nobody really knows. >> secretary of state hillary clinton is on her way to egypt. what does she bring to the negotiating table that wasn't there already? >> reporter: well, obviously she met last night with prime minister netanyahu, she met this morning with the palestinian president. today she will be sitting down with the egyptian president morsi. she won't be dealing directly with hamas but essentially egypt is hamas's proxy as far as the u.s. is concerned in dealing

4:07 am
intelligence, the dni. >> reporter: u.n. ambassador susan rice relied on those talking points during an appearance on "face the nation" where she called it a spontaneous demonstration. not an act of terrorism. >> we do not have information at present that leads to us conclude this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: republicans have accused her of intentionally making misleading statement, suggesting they tone down any references to terrorism for political reasons ahead of the presidential election. cia director david petraeus told congress last week that an early draft of the talking points did include a link between al qaeda and the attack. but the official told us someone in the office of the dni crossed it out because the links were deemed too tenuous to make public at that point. the head of dni is james clapper an obama appointee. clapper reviewed the points but there's no indication that he personally made the edits.

i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling.

4:12 am
>> they make it sound like it's nothing more than a aspirin when it definitely is more than that. all you have to do is open up the instructions when you buy a package and you see all the health risks that are listed there. >> reporter: others are uneasy about eliminating a doctor's supervision. >> what if something goes wong and they don't know that you are taking birth control pills. >> reporter: there are simple checklists women can use to determine if the pill is right for them. today is one of thes aboutiest travel days the year, aaa estimating 44 million americans will travel 50 miles or more this thanksgiving holiday. but those looking for a last minute rental car will have a hard time especially in the northeast. hurricane sandy damaged or destroyed a quarter million cars including those owned by rental companies and are training to keep up with demand. the larger companies plan to honors to reservations but people who walk in and try to
